HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Montana has begun issuing its newly designed driver’s licenses and identification cards.

The Department of Justice says the new cards include features such as barcodes and security backgrounds designed to reduce fraud and identity theft.

The background graphic on the new card was based on a photo of Glacier National Park. The lamination includes embedded images of a meadowlark, the word “Montana” and ponderosa pine trees while the card stock is perforated with an image of a bitterroot flower that is visible when held up to a light source.

The information on the card is printed in ultraviolent sensitive inks that fluoresce green when held up to a UV light source.

The new cards are available in Missoula, Great Falls and Helena and will be available in Bozeman and Billings later this week.
